Using Mythematics in the Classroom: The Fifth Labor of Hercules
Huber, Michael
PRIMUS, v19 n6 p500-509 2009
The mythology surrounding Hercules has been a part of human culture for over 2,500 years. In ancient Greek mythology, Eurystheus assigns various labors to Hercules, who has to perform them in order to cleanse his soul. This article treats one of the more famous labors, the fifth labor: The Augean Stables. The labor is provided verbatim from Apollodorus and then I describe three tasks needed to accomplish the labor, followed by their solutions. The solutions are in a separate section, in case the reader wishes to solve them before reading the solutions I provide. Each of the three tasks may be used as problems in the classroom to enhance learning. (Contains 2 figures.)
